Spirited Holiday Tale Reveals Why Santa Is Never Seen

Marble Falls, TX. Soon, bells will be ringing and children will be singing, and they’ll be plotting their plans for staying up late and catching Santa Claus as he eats the cookies off the plate. But as long as their eyes are open, no Santa will they see. How can this possibly be? Kids would like to know before the snow!

In Christmas Holiday Cheer Tattletale Titter Tizzy Tale, author Stephen Cherokee Drury pens an amusing story that reveals the surprising answer to one of the world’s best kept secrets: How has Santa managed to go undetected by prying eyes for centuries? Is Santa’s secret truly that “he knows when you are sleeping, and he knows when you’re awake?” Could the elves be behind Santa’s ability to remain hidden from anxious, curious eyes, or could it be his magic deer – Holiday Cheer?

Drury uses sing-song rhymes coupled with clever alliteration to weave fast-paced passages that readers of all ages will enjoy. It’s the perfect tale to tell around a warm holiday fire with the family all around. It is especially fun to read to the kiddos just before dreamland.

Author Stephen Cherokee Drury is a humorist, philosopher, business owner and rancher who grew up within the ranching community in Texas. He spent many of his earlier days on trucks, tractors and combines, and he has owned ranch-related businesses since 1989. Stephen has completed undergraduate, graduate and post graduate degree success through his studies of behavioral science and philosophy. He has been a writer all his life, keeping his compositions tucked away in notebooks until recently, when he published Christmas Gift, a collection of his original verses dating back 30 plus years that also features his photography. He resides in the Hill Country of Texas.

Bigger Than Business: Inspiring Stories That Prove We Can Live God’s Purpose Through Work—And Succeed!

Fort Worth, TX, In a society where workforces—especially executives—are encouraged to keep their professional lives and spiritual lives separate, Jeff Holler’s Bigger Than Business: Real-World Stories of Business Owners Living Their Purpose is a thought-provoking testimonial to the power of a faith-driven existence—even in the boardroom.

Bigger Than Business shares transparent, true-life stories of Christian entrepreneurs living out their God-created purposes in their unique business settings. Between the covers of Bigger Than Business, readers will meet eight faithful business owners from six continents who share their remarkable stories, including:

• A US couple who rose above a personal tragedy and through their business set a transformative example for all;
• An inspiring Australian business owner who, with God’s help, transformed a business capable of serving one individual at a time into one poised to serve hundreds of thousands around the globe;
• A Brazilian with a Japanese heritage who was fired by his own family, yet returned to help build and continue the family business; and
• An amazing woman who barely survived the genocide in Rwanda and who now heals broken hearts through her small sewing cooperative.

At the end of each chapter are insightful questions to help readers understand ways in which they can live their God-given purposes in and through their own businesses. Bigger Than Business gives readers the know-how and the confidence to pursue what they value and to commit more passionately to pursuing a greater purpose.

Author Jeff Holler is a speaker and founder of The Capital Chart Room LTD, serving some of the most respected and successful entrepreneurs in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A certified financial planner, Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Florida State University. He leads an adult Bible study class, and he and his wife, Charlsey, commit their time, talent, gifts and service to several ministries. They have two wonderful daughters with precious families of their own. Jeff and Charlsey live in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Rise of Esperanto: The Fate Of Mankind Rests On One Man’s Enlight-enment

New York, NY. In the year 2361, the world’s political structure teeters on the edge of disaster as tensions intensify between countries and continents. Vespacia’s military and business communities join forces, plotting to gain control of Esperanto in the face of its astonishing growth. Despite continued insistence to the contrary, world domination seems to be Vespacia’s ultimate goal.

Such is the world imagined by author Eliade Moldovan in The Rise of Esperanto, a thrilling work that dives deep into the cultural conflicts of futuristic, dystopian societies.

Amid the turmoil is Ovi, a simple and open-minded priest who opposes the escalating violence. Struggling with the meaning and evolution of understanding God and His means, Ovi finds himself at the head of a new religious faction, one that disagrees with hard-core believers in the Old Testament’s teachings. With his newfound status as leader of this prominent religious faction, Ovi is in a unique position to prevent the Vespacians from achieving world domination, even as he further questions the existence of God.

As the conflict between Vespacia and Esperanto spreads and becomes increasingly violent, Ovi works to find a lasting resolution, but will it come too late? In the midst of the madness of the widening war between Esperanto and Vespacia, the world’s fate lies in the hands of one very ordinary man and a benevolent alien god.

Born in Romania, author Eliade Moldovan and his wife enjoy vacations and have traveled around the world, exploring nature and undertaking the occasional adventurous trips. Moldovan is also the author of The World Ends Tomorrow.

Nearly A Century Of Wisdom Helps Connect Us To Our Creator

Los Angeles, CA. After years of studying the Bible, as well as many other religions, Dr. Pieter Noomen—who received his doctorate in theology and pastoral psychology, was senior minister of three protestant churches and a psychotherapist and staff member of a Los Angeles metropolitan church—can show you how it’s possible to connect one-on-one with your Creator.

Smell The Hydraulic Fluid, Feel The Shake Of The Rotors In Memoir Of Special Operations Unit Member

Smell The Hydraulic Fluid, Feel The Shake Of The Rotors In Memoir Of Special Operations Unit Member

Parker, CO. There are few of us who have experienced what Special Operations team members have felt during a perilous and secretive mission. David Burnett has and he’s chronicled it in his powerful memoir, Making a Night Stalker.

Burnett opens up the highly secretive world of the Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), the most accomplished and secretive special ops aviation unit on the globe. The importance of teamwork and heroism are driven home to readers in taut prose that brings to life what it is like to be at the knife’s edge, knowing a moment of inattention can bring catastrophe to you and your closest comrades.

His journey starts in a conventional Army unit where he feels unfulfilled. The lack of responsibility drives him to pursue the goal of becoming an MH-47G Chinook helicopter crew chief in the world’s most secretive unit. Despite obstacles and endless training, he’s finally able to set foot on the aircraft. Achieving FMQ (Fully Mission Qualified) crew chief takes additional years of training and deployments, but after achieving the sought after role, he is honorably discharged from the military. Burnett also explores his PTSD, which drove him to alcohol. The beast was finally tamed through taking up writing, he said.

For those whose only experience of war has been through media headlines, Burnett’s book presents a vivid picture of the vaunted Special Operations Aviation unit and the toll it takes on its members.

Author David Burnett was born and raised in Parker, Colorado. After a few semesters of college, he enlisted in the Army in 2008. He was stationed with 563rd ASB as a 15U (Chinook helicopter repairer). After realizing his job in the regular Army was not as fulfilling as he had hoped, he applied for 160th SOAR. He went through countless years of training and deployed with the unit five times before deciding he wasn’t going to reenlist. He put pen to paper after receiving an honorable discharge from the unit and began writing his story.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Book America Desperately Needs Right Now

Reno, NV. It’s the first night of Hanukkah, and all through the house everything is going like clockwork for secret gift-giver, Hanukkah Harvie. But it’s also Christmas Eve, and when Harvie enters a household that celebrates both Hanukkah and Christmas, he comes face-to-face with the one and only Santa Claus! When the shocked pair realize that some families appear on each of their lists, the competition is on to prove which holiday reigns supreme. The two engage in a humorous gift-giving frenzy, and in the process, discover that working together is always better than working against each other.

Hanukkah Harvie vs. Santa Claus: The Chrismukkah Kerfuffle is an amusing, heartfelt holiday tale from acclaimed author David Michael Slater, featuring gorgeous illustrations from artist Michelle Simpson. A treat for children (and adults) of all ages, Hanukkah Harvie vs. Santa Claus promotes the powerful messages of tolerance, acceptance and compromise, some-thing — in the wake of Squirrel Hill (where David grew up) — our country needs more than ever.

David Michael Slater is an acclaimed author of over 20 books for children, teens and adults, including the hilarious comic-drama for adults, Fun & Games, a novel about growing up Jewish in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill. His nonfiction work includes 25 Ideas in Education That Just Don’t Work — And How to Fix Them. Slater teaches middle school in Nevada, where he lives with his wife and son. He recently wrote about his personal connection to the synagogue shootings in Squirrel Hill in his AP News article, “A mass murder in Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.” (Read it here: https://www.apnews.com/15b6a42ab5aa489da8f5a9f035d857ef.)
